While I Was Away

I've been quite on the blogging front because I've been head down trying to finish my Moonlit Sky quilt for the Lowell Quilt Festival.  I have to send it out by the end of this week, so I've been working on it any time I have some free time.  Yesterday I finished adding the last of the 3000 Swarovski crystals and added and finished the binding.  All that is left is the hanging sleeve and the label.  I'll post pictures once I'm done.

In the mean time, I thought I'd share the project that i took with me to Georgia and the Bahamas.

I started making some hexi's using a free mini charm pack that I won a while back.  This totally isn't my style, but I thought I'd make this into a wall hanging as a gift for someone else.  I laid out all of the hexagons on the piece of paper behind it and taped them to it as I was sewing it together.  This helped me keep the layout that I wanted without hexi's moving all over the place.

I'll probably put this aside for a bit now and pick it up when it comes time to travel another time.  We shall see.  Maybe I'll bring it with my on our upcoming trip to Paris.
